The Covid-19 pandemic has not derailed the Youth and Sports Ministry’s efforts to educate the masses on the various job, and economic opportunities within the sports industry. Stakeholders applaud the move, hoping such conversations will continue.

To create a productive labour force for the future, a nation does not necessarily need to send most of its young people to study data or artificial intelligence at universities, writes economic researcher Azizul Amiludin.
